I've been losing a lot of red. I think the T5HO is getting dimmer.

Everything thrown in the filter box grows weedy. I've been using it to propagate more plants for the pond.

xenxes Been busy with the new house & job. I've been sparsely updating another forum, here's some select photos:

Now sitting on an IKEA shelf @ intersection of my foyer/kitchen/living area. The shelf is better for a 55L but I didn't want to make the effort to start a new tank, so I just threw in 2 wabi kusas to fill the empty space.

Filter boxes are changing a lot, I've mainly been using these to harvest plants then to throw them into my new outdoor 270gallon pond (did it cheap & natural for $80 )

Still have a couple otos.

Mosura SSS, not very high grade.


And answering some old Qs, no CO2, no dosing, just osmocote inserts into substrate (mix of dirt+sand+rocks) every 6 months or so.

Some more pics here (mostly shrimp) starting on page 13, from past few months.

I'll take some more pics tonight.

I dunno...
I know he moved from his apartment into a new house so maybe he's concentrating on that..
I know some of his tanks have been retired after the move...
